In the waste ores room.
Chen Rui’s strategy was very effective. Now that the center was dark, Yagus’s long-ranged attack loses its power and the flames on both of them made them the easy target.
Yagus reacted very quickly. He didn’t stay in the dark. He teleported and retreated to the door. However, Sully didn’t move but sneered. The demonic fire on her body gradually disappeared, and she also disappeared in the dark.
“Hmph, this idiot goes for wool and come back shorn. He actually dares to fight Sully in the dark.” Yagus said to himself. Although the flying scythe in his hand wasn’t put down, he clearly had confidence in Sully.
Chen Rui immediately understood Yagus’s confidence. Although it was pitch black, Sully was unaffected at all. Instead, her action seemed more rapid and accurate, as if she were born for the dark.
Initially, Sully’s attack was characterized by its strangeness. With the cover of the dark now, it had become stealthier and harder to dodge.
Within just a few minutes, the ghostly figure made Chen Rui felt overwhelmed. He suffered a few attacks consecutively. Assuming that the magic lamp wasn’t put off, he could’ve still coped with it. Yet, he felt restrained by himself now. Chen Rui knew that he couldn’t go on like this. Since Yagus was at a distant and Sully was alone, he must seize this opportunity to settle one of them. Otherwise, he’d definitely fail.
In Sully’s eyes, her enemy’s reaction seemed to become more sluggish as time went by because of the injury, and he had more trouble in detecting her exact location. A slight change in airflow came from his lower ribs. This time, the enemy’s reaction was obviously even slower. He was pierced by the dagger and screamed. He then formed a knife-shape with his hand and chopped toward the attacking direction. Sully didn’t know whether it was a feint, but thinking of the horror of that secret technique just now, she couldn’t bother removing the dagger and withdrew immediately.
However, this enemy was aimlessly attacking in a madly manner which seemed to be hysterical. Sully suddenly understood that her previous hit had heavily damaged her opponent. She sneered secretly. She feinted to attract her opponent’s attention, then she sneaked to his back like a ghost and stabbed at full force. At that moment, her opponent still didn’t realize. The female Great Demon’s red lips were slightly raised, forming a bloodthirsty smile.
Yagus who was outside noticed the screams and cries weren’t Sully’s voice, and his heart was more determined. He shouted, “Sully, remember to keep him alive, but you must first remove his limbs.”
At the same time as Yagus made a sound, Sully felt a chill in her heart. Her confident attack was suddenly stopped. The dagger in her hand only inserted by three inches. When she looked down at her heart, she looked unbelievable. The thing that pierced her heart was a double-headed dagger, which was her own weapon. Now, it had penetrated her heart while the other side of the dagger was in the hands of Chen Rui.
In Sully’s eyes, in an instant, this enemy pulled out the dagger at his lower ribs at an unimaginable speed and pierced it back at the center of her heart like a lightning. The calmness and accuracy of this blow was nothing like the previous sluggish and mad look previously. It turned out that the enemy had been able to accurately detect her movements. He was baiting her all along.
Sully used her remaining strength and shouted, wanting to take Chen Rui down with herself by putting all force in her hands, but Chen Rui removed the dagger at her heart before that. Then, her remaining power was as if emptied out; she collapsed to the ground.
“Sully!” Yagus finally realized there was something wrong. He shouted aloud, then he held his flying scythe tight, brewing an explosive power in his body. He carefully approached, but he didn’t know that an open palm was aiming directly at him in the dark.
Chen Rui was charging his <Aurora Shot>, waiting Yagus to get close. Suddenly, <Analytical Eyes> showed a reminder. Before he could react, his body was tightly wrapped, and a red light suddenly shone brightly.
It turned out that Sully, who was dying on the ground, heard Yagus’ voice and held Chen Rui down desperately. Who knows how she had the strength to do it
“Yagus! <Thousand Blades>”
Sully’s demonic fire made Chen Rui completely exposed in Yagus’s sight. It was a flame that Sully paid with her life. Chen Rui couldn’t break free from the entanglement at once, but his extended arm still had the palm remained open.
Yagus stepped forward, shouted and countless whistling sound from the sky sounded. He actually launched <Thousand Blades> without hesitation.
A cold light flashed in Chen Rui’s eyes, then a white, huge light ball gushed out at high speed, rushing toward Yagus. Yagus didn’t expect his opponent to have such an ultimate move. He couldn’t use teleport as he was launching <Thousand Blades> at full force. The flying scythes that he threw at the light ball in desperation was instantly swallowed. He could only cross his arms and blocked with his weakened body after using his ultimate move.
However, he still couldn’t take it.
Now, Chen Rui’s strength was nothing like before. They were both early Higher Demon, so Yagus couldn’t possibly fend off the <Aurora Shot> like Mikas did. His demonic fire was almost completely swallowed up by white light, and his body kept moving backward uncontrollably while his defense gradually collapsed. “Poom!”, the <Aurora Shot> pushed Yagus into the rear wall and the entire waste ores room seemed to tremble.
The white light finally disappeared. A huge, spherical dent appeared on the hard stone wall, and Yagus’ softened body was deeply trapped in the wall.
The greatest wonder of <Thousand Blades> was the endless loop of attacks. Now that Yagus was knocked out, he naturally couldn’t repeatedly attack. Chen Rui launched <Aurora Shot> just now and couldn’t dodge, so his shoulder was hit. There were a few scratches. On the other hand, Sully, who held tightly became a bunker as her back was inserted with 4 flying scythes. Her demonic fire was extinguished; she was already dead.
“Sir Culia… will come back in 2 days. He’ll avenge me…”
Yagus’ voice came from the wall in front before he died. Before he could finish his words, he was already dead.
A ring appeared on Chen Rui’s finger which was shining in bright light. It was the illumination ring that Joseph “provided”. He gently removed Sully’s hands and placed her corpse on the floor. Then, he removed the flying scythe on his shoulder, and he also the 4 flying scythes on Sully’s back. Finally, he slowly closed her dead eyes that were filled with grievance.
Chen Rui didn’t know why he did these extra things, but his heart was still shocked by Sully’s action. In fact, the stab in her heart was already a fatal wound, but in order to defeat him and protect Yagus, she used her last breathe to make the choice of taking him down with herself. If Chen Rui had a choice, he didn’t want to harm or kill any women, but he had no choice.
In a battle, there were only the enemy and oneself; only life and death.
On the other hand, Yagus was the exact opposite. First, he didn’t hesitate to launch <Thousand Blades>. Even before he died, he didn’t even mention Sully’s name. He only said that Culia would avenge “me” instead of “us”.
Female Great Demon……
The only thing that is difficult to die in our lives is love.
Maybe… maybe there’s no maybe…
A pair of familiar beautiful red eyes appeared in his mind inexplicably. His body which was initially cold because of the blood loss was suddenly filled with a warm flow.
Chen Rui’s injuries this time were lighter than when he battled with Mikas. The most serious injury was the one at the lower ribs that he used to lure his enemy, but his Star Power was severely depleted. After drinking a bottle of Healing Potion, he began to examine the huge hole.
Now that the magic lamp at the top was shattered, relying on the illumination ring, he could see layers of the waste ore stacked on top of each other. Chen Rui thought about it and opened his storage warehouse, wanting to keep these waste ores. As a result, the storage warehouse instantly became full for the first time. It was even the expanded warehouse in “Mizar state”.
The minerals in the huge pit were reduced by a few meters suddenly, but it was still not bottomed out. He didn’t know how deep was this pit.
At that moment, the closed stone door of the waste ores room made the sound of being pushed open suddenly, so Chen Rui immediately closed the illumination ring. The door was pushed open, but under the light of the wall lamp, he didn’t see anyone. After some time, a familiar voice finally sounded, “Master, are you there?”
It turned out to be Dodo. Chen Rui activated the torch ring and took a sigh of relief, “Dodo, are you alright?”
As Dodo heard his voice, he hurriedly jumped toward the light, making a strange sound on the ground. When he came to Chen Rui, his expression turned into a flattery smile “Master, Dodo is so amazing. I swallowed the two-headed dog, but the bones tasted too bad, so I spat them out.”
Chen Rui was stunned. As he thought of the huge skeleton in the black rainforest, his heart felt a little creepy, “How did you find me here?”
“Dodo once swallowed a canine-like enemy, then somehow my nose became very sensitive, and I’m able to smell master’s scent.” Dodo’s face suddenly formed a dog-head shaped and sniffed the ground, showing off with his rich body language.
Chen Rui was taken aback: In other words, The chance for Dodo to gain the ability of the swallowed target is the devil fruit’s special ability? No wonder it can use Dragon’s Demeanor. It seems that I gained a pretty awesome servant this time.
The strongest slime in history might become the strongest demonic beasts in history.
“Dodo, well done. You won’t be left out in the barbecue next time.”
When Dodo heard its master praised, he proudly formed two arms and crossed on its “waist”, smiling exaggeratedly with its big mouth.
After Dodo was being proud for awhile, he suddenly thought of something and said, “Master, there were a lot of people blocking at the entrance … Dodo dares not go out…”
That sentence exposed Dodo’s inherent timid character. The title as the strongest demonic monster in history was just a transient, ethereal image. The current strongest slime currently was still just a slime.
Since he killed Sully and Yagus this time and the cerberus was even swallowed by Dodo, it was probably hard to settle. From the words of Yagus, Culia who would return in 2 days, his strength was absolutely above Sully and Yagus; he was at least at the middle stage of Higher Demon. Now, the time was tight. On the one hand, he must train hard with the limited time; on the other hand, he must try to distract Culia’s attention, so that he wouldn’t connect it to the mining office so soon.
The several guards at the main pit entrance were already killed previously. Those who chased were only the cerberus, Sully and Yagus. When the others who were relatively weak arrived, Chen Rui and the others had already entered the main pit, so there wasn’t anyone else that heard or seen anything.
Dodo curiously watched his master pondered for a while, then he actually looked at Dodo with a strange look. Dodo suddenly had a bad feeling, then he heard his master said sincerely, “Dodo, it seems that it’s time for you to go back to your old profession.”
